A friend and I were talk about the show that Regis Philbin hosted. He claims a contestant had the opportunity to bow out of the questioning at any point. I recall that people had to answer each question until they missed one, at which point the person one the amount of the last “threshold” he passed. I checked the rules on the website and it appears my friend was correct. But I have no memory of this being part of the show? Does anyone remember this actually being part of the play. Was it a common thing on every show, or a rare occurence when the issue came up?
Any idea how often someone took the option of bowing out?
